This is caused by the fragment in cp/init.c
/* Convert 'this' to the specified type to disambiguate conversion
to the function's context. Apparently Standard C++ says that we
shouldn't do this. */

It seems there are several interpretations of 10.2/1. GCC's
interpretation is that, indeed, lookup starts in ISPmq, and finds
HwQueue::pop. So the call you have written is equivalent to
which is ambiguous.
It would be good if you could achieve independent clarification,
e.g. through comp.std.c++. If people are of different opinion there as
well, consider filing a Defect Report. Notice that variations of this
have been discussed repeatedly in comp.stdc.c++; you may want to read
